Anyone notice that Power Manager for W7 RTM is old

#1 Post by pae77 » Thu Sep 24, 2009 4:36 am

I installed the power manager from the Lenovo W7 driver page. It claimed to be for W7 RTM. It turned out to be Power Manager 2 - v. 2.43 which is quite a bit older than the beta version they had previously released for W7 beta. Does anyone else find this to be a little strange?

It's odd that it's only v2.43. I'm running the non-Win7 version on my x60s and it's v2.50 (and I noticed on the driver matrix page that there is a new Vista v2.51). The Vista version runs just fine on my box.

I saw that same thing and found it to be strange, but i downloaded and installed 3.0 from this link:

So far it's working fine.
